I bought one of these 2 weeks ago, and I am probably going to send it back. The Backlit CMOS sensor gives great low light performance, but in good light it gives worse pictures than my old CCD equipped IXUS 90 IS.
The focus is also slower, and it often fails to focus correctly. If you are going to shoot mainly in good light it it worth bearing this is mind.

Bought this two days ago. Have gone through all operational techniques.A nice handy camera with very good low light performance (considering the sensor size for this type). Image quality is quite good; so is its video recording capability. Cons:1. very scantily spaced control buttons; 2.cannot enter into digital (not optical) zoom for still images and video recording unless aspect ratio is set to 4:3, although the camera has shooting options in other desired aspect ratios.

Been playing with this camera for a couple of weeks. Mixed results. It's behaved well in a variety of conditions and I love that I can fit a camera of this quality in a trouser pocket. On the other hand, I'm really annoyed that pictures taken with digital zoom are enlarged to the currently selected resolution.

Update! Have you thought about - TOST ZON DISCOUNTS (should be on google have a look)? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my auntie saved tons of money with it. They used that small yellow box, that is located on the site, to get a 70% discount on a lawn mower from Amazon. You may be able to find an incredible item(s) on Amazon at a decent price using this widget.Just checked and there are a few deals on this product
